I assume that this election will witness the usual three presidential debates and the one vice-presidential debate. I would like to see that schedule expanded in the following manner. Hardly a day passes without some criticism of Michelle Obama on the web and occasionally there is criticism of the Obama children and now there are all the dog jokes. Therefore, in addition to the four above debates, I propose one debate between Michelle Obama and Ann Romney. The two Obama children can be featured in a discussion with the two youngest Romney children who are adults or with two Romney grandchildren of ages approximating that of the Obama children. Finally, but not least, I would add some levity to the whole process by devoting the final half hour of the third debate between Mitt and Barack to questions directed toward the President’s dog and one of the Romneys’ dogs. I would allow Barack and Mitt to answer for the dogs.
